Chula Vista Drain Cleaning

Have you ever had the situation where you are taking a shower and the water drains so slowly that you end up standing in a pool of dirty water? Or, you are trying to drain a pot of cooked pasta but the pasta water is pooling in the sink? In a typical home, there are lots of places where a clog can cause havoc: toilets, dishwashers, and washing machines.

There are many DIY strategies to clean or unclog a drain:

  • Use a cup-plunger and try to dislodge small clogs.
  • Use a mix of baking soda and vinegar to loosen the clog; then flush with hot water to dislodge the debris.
  • Rent or buy an auger (drain snake) and try to bore a hole through the clog.

If the above remedies do not work, then it is time to call ARS – Neighborhood Rooter & Plumber for Chula Vista Drain Cleaning Services.

How do Professionals Clean a Drain?

A professional plumber has top-of-the-line equipment and tools to resolve tough clogs. One tool is a motorized drain auger (snake) and the second tool is a hydro-jetter.

Motorized Drain Auger: An auger is a metal coil that snakes down a drainpipe until it hits the clog. With a motorized auger, the motor will rotate the metal coil to drill through the clog. Motorized augers are more powerful compared to the hand-crank augers that are available from home improvement stores. Even if you had access to a motorized auger, you should be very careful because if used inappropriately, it could damage your pipes.

Hydro-Jetter: A hydro-jetter is a water tank attached to a hose with a rotating nozzle. The hose is snaked down a pipe until it reaches the clog. The hydro-jetter delivers a high-pressure blast of water that clears away the dirt and clog. A hydo-jetting machine can be dangerous if used incorrectly, thus you should always leave the job to the professionals.
